mom nursing her little one and enjoying family time

WIC is celebrating breastfeeding moms and babies with health fairs that offer activities and resources to help support nursing moms. There's a celebration happening at each Multnomah County WIC location. WIC families are invited to attend.

Breastfeeding is beneficial for both mom and baby, and is recommended for at least the first 1-2 years. Families that receive help and encouragement with breastfeeding are more likely to overcome issues that can cause them to stop.
